Lightning-based. So soft, it's hard to damage physically. Weak against water, so blast it with Water. Don't use lightning or it will recover HP.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

Thunder is the sound caused by lightning. Depending on the distance and nature of the lightning, thunder can range from a sharp, loud crack to a long, low rumble (brontide).

Flan is an open pastry or sponge cake containing a sweet or savory filling. A typical flan of this sort is round, with shortcrust pastry, usually coated with sweet syrup. It is similar to a custard tart or a South African melktert.
